Staghorn fern for sale (actual pup in photos)

Pup size: 25cmW x 18cm H
Largest antler: 45cm
Shortest antler: 8cm

Pick-up Papakura

Easy to grow epiphytic fern sometimes grown in pots but best mounted, hanging or perched. Propagating them can be a great hobby, low impact, with minimal equipment required, and it will get your creative juices flowing as you figure out different places and interesting props/hosts to grow them on.

Parent is probably one of the largest you've seen, measuring 3.5mH x 4mW (girth of 12m around it's 'poor' host)

The host is a 100+year old Miro tree that is suffering from the weight and possible ring-barking of this 30yr old fern. I'd like to sell these pups to pay for the ferns complete removal and care/pruning for the Miro to save it.

Price: $30

Better Later Life takes a fresh look at what is required to ensure New Zealand is a great place to age and achieve the vision of making sure older people lead valued, connecting and fulfilling lives.

The strategy's key areas for action will be used to guide the priorities of what needs to happen in our action plan.
